UK Endoscopy Training Course


Live demonstrations and training using Creo's Speedboat and CROMA platform

Two-day course supports CREO's UK-wide Clinical Education Programme

Over 40 Clinicians participating


Creo Medical Group plc (AIM: CREO), a medical device company focused on the emerging field of surgical endoscopy, announces that the Queen Elizabeth and the Queen Mother Hospital in Margate ("QEQM Hospital"), part of the East Kent University Hospitals Foundation Trust ("East Kent Trust"), today enters into the second day of a two-day endoscopy training course for over 40 UK clinicians, which will include live demonstrations and training on Creo's Speedboat device and CROMA advanced energy platform.


The Endoscopy Training Course is being led by Dr Zacharias Tsiamoulos, Consultant in Gastroenterology and Specialist in GI Endoscopy at the East Kent Trust and Professor Yutaka Saito, Director of the Endoscopy Division at the National Cancer Center Hospital, Tokyo, Japan.

The course is being sponsored by Creo and Diagmed Healthcare Limited ("Diagmed"), Creo's UK distribution partner, amongst others. Dr Tsiamoulos is a key opinion leader in the field of Gastrointestinal ("GI") therapeutic endoscopy and a leading user of Creo's Speedboat device for colorectal endoscopic submucosal dissection, an advanced surgical procedure using endoscopy to remove gastrointestinal pre-cancerous lesions that have not entered the muscle layer. Dr Tsiamoulos trained in the procedure in Japan under world leading key opinion leader, Professor Saito, one of the global pioneers in therapeutic endoscopy.


The course supports Creo's education-led strategy and reflects Diagmed's commitment to advance the roll out of Creo's Clinical Education Programme in the UK, ensuring quality control and best patient outcomes through the education of key clinicians in the use of Speedboat and the CROMA platform. 


The two-day event will allow delegates to observe a number of live procedures undertaken by Dr Tsiamoulos using Creo's Speedboat, which can deliver bipolar radiofrequency for precise localised cutting and microwave energy for controlled coagulation.  Dr Tsiamoulos will also provide direct training to delegates on the techniques required to successfully undertake endoscopic submucosal dissection procedures using the Speedboat device as an outpatient procedure, helping to reduce the risks associated with alternative open and laparoscopic procedures, reducing the length of stay in hospital for the patient, and reducing the cost of treatment and transferring therapy from the operating theatre to the endoscopy room.


Craig Gulliford, Chief Executive Officer of Creo, commented:

"Our strategy has always been focused on ensuring that key clinicians are educated in the use of Speedboat and the CROMA platform to safeguard quality control and best patient outcomes. This training course at the QEQM hospital, and our wider Clinical Education Programme, aims to ensure that the first adopters of our technology, having been carefully mentored by our own doctors and endoscopy nurses, can deliver consistently high standards in this emerging field of surgical endoscopy."

About Creo Medical


Creo Medical, founded in 2003, is a medical device company focused on the development and commercialisation of minimally invasive surgical devices, by bringing advanced energy to endoscopy.  The Company's mission is to improve patient outcomes by applying microwave and RF energy to surgical endoscopy.  Creo has developed CROMA, an electrosurgical advanced energy platform that combines bipolar radiofrequency for precise localised cutting and microwave for controlled coagulation.  This technology provides clinicians with flexible, accurate and controlled surgical solutions.


The Company's strategy is to bring its CROMA platform to market through a suite of medical devices which the Company has designed, initially for the emerging field of GI therapeutic endoscopy, an area with high unmet needs.  The CROMA platform will be developed further for bronchoscopy and laparoscopy procedures.  The Company believes its technology can impact the landscape of surgery and endoscopy by providing a safer, less-invasive and more cost-efficient option of treatment.
